  • Singapore is at a "critical phase" in its battle against the COVID-19 pandemic as more citizens return from abroad, said National Development Minister Lawrence Wong. With more than a thousand Singaporeans returning from the United States and United Kingdom every day, new confirmed cases are likely to go up, he said.
    In his ministerial statement to Parliament on Wednesday (Mar 25), Mr Wong said the latest Government measures may help to slow down the spread of the virus and stabilise the number of new cases, but cautioned that it is also possible that the number of cases would continue to rise.
